    Have to agree with Linus, even if you don't use Ray Tracing then Nvidia is still the better option for everything else.

    All these CUDA optimized programs, NVENC is better quality, DLSS, Noise Canceling etc etc

    AMD doesn't have any of this that is better or even available, right now.

    Hilbert did test a few games with a X570, a 5950X and 6800XT. :)
    Performance increase on SAM when working can be very high on some games.

    When it comes to Rage Mode it seems to be better to do just a manual OC instead because
    that is basicly what Rage Mode does except it does not increase memory.

    AMD had 2 jobs,
    good performance - check
    More cards for sale than I had trips to the toilet today - failed

    Another paper launch lol, I'll hold full judgement for a couple of weeks

    rofl this is a very good channel and very far from an amd pr channel.

    If 3070 had 10gb ram id took it right now as it has good availability in my country

    Totaly broken. Here no matter how you calculate 6800 has better value than 3070. Only difference you can buy second

    At current prices, I'm still very much partial to the 3080. Just seems like better value for money considering its ray tracing performance. I think I'd go with the 3070 out of the whole batch of these cards if it just had more memory. Shame, I was kind of hoping to finally get an AMD GPU. It's been a while.

    far from it
    Steve is a terrible person and very amd biased

    I pointed out how they add 40 dollars to r5 3600 value for that tiny cooler which gets devastated by actual 40 dollar coolers

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    but they never anything for the igpu on the 9600K,not a cent.

    all I got was abuse from the community and the channel themselves.the way he instantly snapped was appaling.

    kitguru said the same thing as tpu

    Honestly , if someone cares for wattage , and actuall performace from 1 watt of energy , seems AMD has huge advantage right now , CAN they make more performance frome these chips ?

    Well yeah, that's what the 6900XT is for.

    Do you think web sites no factoring the cooler at all (many of them) are any better? Just asking not assuming. The cooler still come with it and it's more than good enough for most people and it's very hard to find a cooler under 40$ in many countries. I can tell you in Canada the cooler is not nothing and all sites should factor it in their reviews cause this is money you can spend on a GPU if you are building a system from scratch.

    The igpu on intel is crap. You'll get better performance by buying a Ryzen 3100 and a GTX 1660 and it's gonna be about the same price if you factor in the cooler. It doesn't make any sense talking about it. There's no point spending 10600k kind of money to pair it with no dgpu. If you don't buy a dgpu you should look at AMD apu instead or wait until you can get the money. I gamed enough on an intel igpu on my laptop to know you absolutely do not want to do it on desktop like never ever in a millions year.

    So, if you OC RDNA2, to consume as much as competitive from Ampere, and then calculate performance per $. How does it look?
    Apples to apples, right? Aren't you expecting cheaper product to perform better while it eats less power, right?

    Or do you?

    Im not asking your opinion.
    Im trying to account for the actual value of a product you buy which hwub was not interested in hearing.
    and offensive comments from steve - this is pandering to their fanbase at its worst.

    Not everycard works the same in term of oc. Gamernexus explained in details how can you lose performance on a stable oc if it's done incorrectly.
    I'm sick of this full blast on power,voltage and memory speed.. it's just wrong! Balance yourself.
